"Catch the Politician" Is an App meant to power the people. How would it work?

You see 5 lines of your local Budget? At the end of each line you see several options. OK, I Don't Know, Seems Suspicious, I Caught A Politician. At the bottom you have Next (for the next 5) and a Quit. Tek is the tool to use.

It's Simple, everyone can participate, you can do it while you wait in line....

It All goes to a website, Where you can see the top "hits", globally locally, etc or even on the app.

Your Thoughts...

Example: Line 1: $2000 .00 Coats R Us, Dec 13th 2011, John Smith (followed by 5 buttons)[OK] [DON'T KNOW] [SEEMS SUSPICIOUS] [I CAUGHT A POLITICIAN]You would flag it as Seems Suspicious or I Caught A Politician.

I would use this app. The conglomerate website could include this feature in the government interaction component.

I was thinking the same thing, for of a phase 2... It almost got me thinking at what 3rd world countries do in nation building. Perhaps there are tactics/tools there to fight corruption.

Side Note: I was also thinking a Wikipedia like site, Where people would participate in a "business plan" to coordinate tools, analyst, etc.. depending on the "wiki" created... your thoughts?

Not sure if you noticed one of my posts on the other topic, but it I think it's a good direction for the movement. It's a work towards structure, unity and clarity: Maybe it is possible to communicate with someone in each city responsible for coordinating their group's members. Each city can have an entity responsible for -organizing flash-mob protests -shutting down protests which do not follow protocol -aligning their city with the global movement for unity Each city should be like a franchise, operating exactly the same. Try to be like McDonald's restaurants... It's so successful because of the consistency and replication. I like the quote "anyone can make a better hamburger but nobody can make a better selling hamburger." The problem with people these days is unity.

You are talking about a business plan to give direction to the movement? Or for the conglomerate?

Regarding corruption, the only way to defeat it is with new political and economic systems. That is the end goal of the conglomerate. By transferring wealth away from the 1%, change can happen. I'm looking forward to sharing ideas on ideal systems of governance.

Business Plan for the Movement. A Wikipedia like template, where plan(s) and analysis are done through Contribution.

A Occupy-pedia, if you will...

I'd contribute, though I've never authored wikis before.

But first we would need A wiki, http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Download which is free, Is it possible to host a site anonymously?

This is the direction I feel the movement should be taking
